Spend Christmas with ELVIS!

Christmas at Graceland is one of the best times of the year for Elvis fans, as readers of Adam Victor's monumental The Elvis Enyclopedia know. During his lifetime, Elvis released two original Christmas records (Elvis Christmas in 1957 and The Wonderful World of Christmas in 1971). The 1957 album was re-released as Elvis's Christmas Album, which has become Elvis's best-selling LP of all time! Last year, Elvis Presley Christmas Duets was released, featuring Elvis's classic holiday songs with new recordings by some of today's biggest stars paired with the King's original vocals.

Elvis fans can find out more about Elvis and his deep love for the Christmas season in The Elvis Encyclopedia. A perfect gift for Elvis fans, this is a visual compendium of Elvis's life, offering hundreds of photographs, ranging from never-before-seen unposed moments to the extraordinary iconic images the world has come to love. Fans and scholars finally have easy access to all of the information on Elvis s life and times, testing what is real against legend. The facts are represented in full a childhood mired in poverty, his unstoppable rise to the top with over 150 gold, platinum, or multi-platinum albums, 31 feature films, and 14 Grammy awards, his marriage to Priscilla, his early death. Entries cover every significant aspect of Elvis and his world from family members, lovers, benefactors, mentors, agents, directors, co-stars, and coaches. Complete with cross-referencing and a comprehensive bibliography, The Elvis Encyclopedia surpasses everything that has come before it.
